Lyrics
10) Self Defense
While the media hunts him
One man doesn't sleep
Finds harrassment for life
Mother sits there and weeps
They say the action's progress
Crime doesn't end
He might have been mugged before
But he'll never be mugged again!

Why must we lose what we earn
Because of someone else's greed
Is it fair to sew a hole in my side
Because someone else has a need?

The season's controversy, guilty or not guilty?
Been another mark made another spawn of fear
Some dude in Chicago has copped the same idea
Self defense is innocence!

Now everyone with a gun is on a rampage
Armed citizens are holy saints
Deathwish killer, the six o'clock rage
Now Bernie's even got his name up in paint
